Short features video
Highlighted below are a few of the new features:
A brand new visor mechanism
The XR-1100 has a suction seal concept to guarantee it is completely draft free. The visor, in comparison with the XR-1000, has been enlarged to give a broader field of vision and to allow for a larger pin lock visor.
New ventilation system
It incorporates a negative pressure system with a special extraction technology to guarantee the effective and continuous discharge of warm air, even at very low speeds.
Adjustable inlet vents on the chin (with defroster), on the brow (2 vents) and on the back (4 outlet vents) make optimum climate control child's play. A special ventilation duct layout minimizes ventilation noise.
The aerodynamics were perfected in numerous laboratory and road tests. Sophisticated spoilers are integrated in the shell to optimise air flows, making the helmet extremely stable even at high speeds.
The helmet has a low-drag design plus a compact profile that considerably reduces wind noise.
All interior features have been redesigned to enhance XR-1100 wearer comfort. The helmet offers a 3D centre pad which comfortably encases the head. The centre pad, cheek pads and chin strap are all detachable and washable.
It will be available in several plain colors and a range of decors and graphics. It will be priced around the same as the current Shoei XR-1000, the helmet it will replace.
